Webtec, the Cambridge (UK) based hydraulic measurement and control manufacturer, has published a new white paper on ‘Selecting manual hydraulic directional control valves’, aimed at hydraulic engineers, technicians and system designers.
Webtec, the Cambridge (UK) based hydraulic measurement and control manufacturer, has extended its 180 series of
zero-leak directional control valves used to control hydraulic actuators on high-pressure mobile and industrial machinery.
Whether you are a hydraulic distributor, repair centre or manufacturing company, there is now a new and simpler solution for measuring the hydraulic flow, pressure and temperature on your hydraulic test bench. Using Webtec’s extensive range of hydraulic flow meters, pressure transducers and temperature sensors, all with analogue output (4-20 mA or 5V) you can now configure a‘measurement set’ to suit your exact needs. You can then install this ‘set’ inline in your system and when combined with a trio of the newly introduced low-cost pre-configured Webtec Advanced Panel Meters, your operators will quickly get to see exactly what’s really happen ing inside the hydraulic system
Webtec, the Cambridge (UK) based hydraulic measurement and control manufacturer, has launched a new range of low-cost advanced panel meters (APM) pre-configured to complement their existing wide range of hydraulic flow, pressure and temperature sensors with analogue output.
Webtec Products Ltd, of St Ives, Cambridgeshire, UK has updated the design of the 180 series of high-pressure oil-hydraulic directional control valves, due to be available from June 2012.
The 180 series of hydraulic valves is widely used across industries as diverse as oil and gas, construction and defence machinery for controlling the hydraulic operation of high-pressure actuators. This well-established range of rotary spool valves, formerly supplied by Danfoss, has undergone an extensive design review. The purpose of the new design is to help reduce lead times and enable a wider range of custom specials to be made, while ensuring 100% backwards compatibility with the fit and function of the existing design and retaining the proven seat sealing design.
The 180 series of hydraulic valves use pressure loaded seats working against optically flat rotors to automatically compensate for valve wear and to assure near zero leakage even after more than 500,000 cycles. There are a very wide number of variations available and customers can select from numerous options including 7 flow patterns, 3 flow ratings, 4 porting configurations, straight or offset operating handles, spring centring and detents with valves available for in-line, panel or manifold mounting.
